Hiking on the Appalachian Trail


Hiking on the Appalachian Trail was another bucket list experience!  I discovered that you can hike Lodge to Lodge, so you don’t have to carry a tent and food (other than snacks and lunch), along a 17 mile portion of the trail through Virginia in the Shenandoah National Park.  If you’d like to plan your own trip, the details are here.

These are some of the images I encountered while hiking…

If you’re thinking there’s no way I can hike for two days in a row…you may surprise yourself!

  3. I’ll have to make my way further north next time I’m in Virgina. I backpacked the AT at Grayson Highland and Jefferson National Forest. Now that was a beautiful hike with the wild ponies. 🙂
